Over the past 4 years, The President of Nigeria, Muhammed Buhari has been talked about online as either in a positive note or a negative one, but mostly in a negative one. The talks or discussions often borders around issues like politics, the competence of his administration and then his utterances.
His utterances are often used as a metric to determine how diplomatic he is, but unfortunately, he has performed poorly in this regard. Here are some of his worst utterances that showed that he is not diplomatic.
When He Said His Wife Belongs To The Other Room
Once asked a question about his wife, President Buhari made us understand that his wife belongs to the kitchen and the other room. This information did not sit well with Nigerians as they couldn’t wrap their head around the fact that the President of the country didn’t value women and this can also be seen as the reason why there is little or no representation of women in his cabinet.
Nigerian Youths Are Lazy
The President was abroad for a meeting, and when asked about the youths in his country, he said: “Nigerian youths are lazy.” While it’s obvious that a lot of Nigerian youths are making efforts to survive and thrive in this unfavorable economy, they were not impressed with his statement. They took to social media especially Twitter to list their achievements and bash the President.
The I.G. Is Losing Weight, That Means He Is Working
Yesterday, a video of President Buhari on national T.V. made rounds for the wrong reasons. He was asked a question with regards to the effectiveness of the Inspector General of Police in tackling the security challenges in the country, instead of answering the question he was asked, he said the I.G. is losing weight and that means he is working.
There are a lot of other times that President Muhammed Buhari made very controversial speeches. From our knowledge, we believe it is best he stays away from the media or gets his Information Officer to speak to the public. What do you guys think?
